Setting up an appointment and inspection is free at most take 30-1hr wait depending on how busy...

Does this warranty still apply to salvaged cars?

as far as I know all warranty's will end once the car has a damaged title...

however it's always worth a shot... worse case you get is a no... act like you have non dirty title...

This is another one related to your topic - Should you go to the dealer to diagnose for SRS you may or may not have to pay anything. for instance if a seat belt buckle switch within the buckle itself fails and caused the SRS light to turn on (commonly SRS DTC 09-3), provided that it wasnt because you spilt coffee on it or something, then you get a free replacement belt buckle. Of course if it was something else that failed then you will have to pay diagnostics fee (ie SRS unit failure) and/or you do not accept the repair they recommended. 50/50 Chance, not as great of a chance as mechanical failure but its still something that could be free.

All warranties end if car is salvaged.

I tried to get my seatbelt replaced but once they saw "Salvage title" they charged me.
The SRS light appeared and the code said the buckle chip was broken so they replaced it (at about $380.

Therefore, lifetime warranty ends when car is damaged unless you can explicitly cite somewhere thats states otherwise.

Default UPDATE!

In the Warranty Manual of my Honda:

"The warranties in this book do not cover: ... Any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or that has been issued a "salvage" or similar title under any state's law. This exclusion does not apply to the Emissions Warranties, the Seat Belt Limited Warranty, the Replacement Parts Limited Warranty, or any recalls or other campaigns."

So it's an exception to the exception. I want my money back!!!

how exactly would they figure out the cause of the failure? aside from coffee stains.

The dealer does not want to return the money.
I'm calling Honda Consumer Affairs and after that I'm reporting them to the BBB.

its common sense. I dont think I really need to explain further. if you want to get away with it and try cheat to get the warranty make sure nothing in or around it and clean it up real nice, or remove that coin your kids put in it. something like that. that is only one part of it that determines if you qualify, the other part is what the SRS control unit tells the factory HDS, Pocket tester, or PGM tester. since the drivers buckle is the one that gets used the most it will fail a lot faster than the other buckles, if the switch within it fails then there should be a code. the most common is 09-3.

SRS codes aren't really the issue here. What it boils down to is that Honda has taken responsibility for the most basic safety issues related to their cars, i.e. the seat belts. They have (honorably or legally) committed to ensuring that their cars are safe at the most basic level, which is keeping the driver in the intended position via the seat belts. Replacing every Joe Schmoe's seat belts is probably a hell of a lot cheaper than a ton of seatbelt lawsuits. And if they did this preemptively, then good for them.

I went into Honda today. They checked it out. They told me if it's under warranty it'd be free and if not, it would be $99.00 (for the diagnostics). It took them like 20 min to look at it... LOL. I think all they did was tug on it a few times... So its covered since the driver's side retracts slow and the passenger side retracts like half way... (weird that my passenger side sucks more than the driver's)

Anyways, 2 weeks to get the parts in and they told me it'd be about a 2-3 hour job taking stuff apart and putting it back together.

I wonder if they find something in there after they already said warranty that they'll try and charge me.

They probably won't try and charge you for anything related to the seatbelts, but they are likely to come up with some BS service items since your car is older. When I had it done on my 93 VTEC, I came to pick it up and they had a laundry list of stuff that they said needed to be serviced totalling $1200 or so. When I declined the service, the service lady told me "it won't pass inspection like that!". I just laughed and drove off (and passed inspection for 3 more years).

They are doushbags. The Honda stealership I went too 4 years ago to get my first valve adjustment, (and this is after the adjustment, so you pull valve cover AND spark plugs etc.) told me I needed a timing belt/water pump job (1200 or something) because they heard some noise from around that area. I heard the noise but right when I got home, I whipped out my stethoscope and listened to the valve cover while running. Not a sound at all. Sounded blissfull. So I probe around some more, and find that one of my spark plugs was half out of the hole, and another spark plug was missing its head cap (little metal rounded tip with threaded inside) so that boot wouldn't stay on. So two of my cylinders could have lost spark while driving and I'm sure that might not have been good. So when they pulled the spark plugs to do a valve adjustment, they lost that little cap on one of my spark plugs, and when they re-installed them, they left one so loose where it could have popped out NO problem (the sound we were hearing was the vibration of the spark plug above the cylinder LOL). Then to top it off, tell me I need a water pump/ timing belt job (even though the car just had a motor swap and all that was done maybe 40,000 Kms b4 I brought it to that Honda.

I'm DIY all the way now. Thanks Honda stealerships for making me learn automechanics. They are doings us a favor lol.

EDIT* my seatbelt retractors suck *** too. So today I called and am trying to atleast get this done. My luck they will F*ck it up and I'll end up through my windshield cause it popped off the pillar.

Heh, fu*k heads say that "They don't know about any lifetime warrenty on seatbelts"

Is that total bullsh*t or what?
They've never retracted since I owned the car LOL. Honda dealerships suck. We should all protest!!

*edit* tried another Honda dealership and they said "they never even heard of any warranties for seatbelts or retractors"
